Noel & Liam Attacked Onstage in Toronto

While Oasis was ripping through "Morning Glory" last night in Toronto, a nut ran onto the stage and attacked the boys from Manchester.

The lunatic shoved Noel from behind, knocking the guitarist into the monitors. The he went after Liam as security grabbed him. Once the younger Gallagher figures out what is going on, he tries to grab the assailant and beat the piss out of him.

Amateur footage caught the incident. The attack comes at about the 1:30 mark.

After a few minutes, Oasis came back out and finished the show. According the band's website, Noel was treated afterwards for a "suspected fractured rib and ligament damage."

I wish Liam would have gotten ahold of the bastard. I met Liam at an Oasis show in New York at the Roseland Ballroom. He's an intimidating presence. While I'm a little taller than he is, Liam would kick my head in. Mancunians are tough dudes.

Best wishes to Noel.
